[MUSIKMESSE] Softube and Doepfer unveil Modular
Softube has presented Modular, a new cross-platform modular synthesizer plug-in developed with Dieter Doepfer.
After releasing a short teaser a few days ago, Softube has officially presented Modular, a new cross-platform modular synthesizer plug-in that is said to look, work and sound "exactly like its analog Eurorack counterparts".
Softube has collaborated closely with Dieter Doepfer and Intellijel to create circuit emulations of existing hardware modules, and the resulting plug-in modules have been authorized and approved by their respective owners.
Both an effect and an instrument, Softube Modular is described as "fun, limitless and easy to use". The basic system includes six Doepfer modules and 20+ utility modules such as sequencer, mixer, delay and more, and a large preset library will be included. Additional modules from Doepfer and Intellijel will also be available as add-ons at launch (such as LPG, uFold II, Korgasmatron, Rubicon), and more emulations from top hardware synthesizer brands will be released in the future.
Softube Modular will be available starting May 11 for $99. Or, if you can't wait, you can go and see (and even try it!) for yourself at the Musikmesse in Frankfurt, booth D23 in hall 9.1.
